john kerry take the lead. >> i think he will. his speech focused on making sure friends of old enemies. he's focusing on democrac diplomacy. that's something that obama will have to get involved with at that level. i think he will get involved. >> john: one more time, alex, does john kerry have a charisma deficit that the president needs to worry about. >> john kerry has never been known for charisma, but he has been on the stage for a long time and he can hold his own. >> that's why the two of you are always the smartest kids in class. thank you so much for coming on, on this inauguration day. >> thank you. >> john: what would martin luther king jr. be doing if he were alive today? chances are he wouldn't be working for the koch brothers. coming up next. only on current tv. [ voice of dennis ] allstate. with accident forgiveness, they guarantee your rates won't go up just because of an accident. smart kid. [ voice of dennis ] indeed. are you in good hands? the tons of obama merchandise. we have some souvenirs like the john boehner commemorative inaugural republican drinking glass.

senators who served with him on the foreign policy committee on the foreign affairs committee, hagel, kerry and brennan who has been with him four years. >> what happened with president lincoln at the beginning of his second term he no longer needed those rivals to shore them up. he brought them in the first place because he had last experience expej case. by the time he reached his second term he put people he felt comfortable with. some of them were gone. i'm not sure it's a problem. as long as they can still argue with him and debate with him and question his assumptions which is what you want from rivals inside an inner circle as long as they're independent. >> rose: let me turn to the first term. tell me how you address grade own on the first term. >> i think he really wrote, that is a legacy, that is a thing that really moved justice. lyndon johnson would say maybe that saw like he admitted the first civil rights law was really bad but he said the important thing was to pass it. once you pass it, it's easy to go back and fix it. and i think that if i look back on his first term, i t

: are you allowed to do that as a student in new york? caller: we're allowed to conceal kerry, we cannot bring our guns into the school. i only have a shotgun. thanks for your time. michael is apparent in norfolk, virginia. -- a parent in norfolk, virginia. caller: i am the parent of a 6- year-old here. it is tough all the way around. i do not think it would make too much difference. as far as being a parent, it would probably make the parents a little more secure as far as when they bring the children to school. seeing that the incident happened a couple weeks ago, it does make people to agree. -- jittery. the key to all this is a responsibility. we as parents have to start. it starts with us. even though we have individuals that want to pass the book and blame other individuals, it starts with the parents. we have to sit down with children and let them know, make them feel safe first and foremost, and then go about explaining to them, this is a firearm. unfortunately, a lot of people these days, you have to go straight down the line with them and explain to them what their responsibili
